Jim! He needs "you're" grammar lessons, too!<p>I'm not on a computer at the moment, or I'd try to find one of the threads for you. But, maybe this is a good time for you to get acquainted with the Google search link up there in the top right of every page <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/smile.gif" BORDER="0">

I just turned the wastegate on my new to me 2000R and it's too much.<br>(not as smooth)<br>This car was right on the money out of the box so I'm going BACK (opening it) 1/2 turn

I have the same car, and I wanted to turn the thimble. The wastegate thread is so long now, and filled with so much crap. I wish they could make it a sticky and clean it up <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">
